Putting on this special holiday production in Annapolis since 1981, Colonial Players is proud to present A Christmas Carol during the holiday season of 2018. Based on Charles Dickens’s classic, this musical will tell the moving tale of Scrooge’s heart-warming redemption after being haunted by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.
Audience members will be transported through time to Victorian London of 170 years ago to rediscover what Christmas truly means just in time for the holiday season. Sarah Wade will direct this musical adaptation of the Dickens classic with the lyrics of Richard Wade and the music of Richard Gessner.

Original A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol was first published in London by Chapman & Hall on December 19, 1843. Charles Dickens’s novella soon met with both critical acclaim and success. The story revolves around an old embittered miser named Ebenezer Scrooge and his metamorphosis into a generous and kind gentleman after the terrifying visitations by the haunted spirit of his late business partner, Jacob Marley, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come on Christmas Eve.
